Stella San Jac, an Austin-American inspired restaurant located on the corner of San Jacinto Boulevard and Fifth Street, serves an eclectic Southern menu inspired by the local community. The 150-seat restaurant features an open kitchen and lounge where local musicians play on a weekly basis for restaurant guests to enjoy in a welcoming and lively atmosphere. Chef Michael Cerrie's Southern-style menu is inspired by his great-grandmother, Nonni, and her family recipes. Some of Cerrie's favorite menu items include Blueberry Sweet Bread French Toast and Gulf Shrimp and Lump Crab Roll. The restaurant's distinct Austin-American cuisine has a menu that features what are sure to be favorites including classics with a twist like Braised Short Ribs with Sweet Potato Mash and Green Apple Slaw. Of particular pride is the #16 Biscuits named after the number of batches tested to perfect its recipe.
